Diana graduated from Yale University in with dual degrees in Literature and Geology, which her family claimed would only come in handy if she wrote Diana Peterfreund has been a costume designer, a cover model, and a food critic.

I te have been predisposed to like Elliot, but the way my heart launched itself into my throat when hers did, the way my temper rose on her behalf, and the way I held my breath at her restraint and cheered her adamant refusal to be downtrodden.

Dystopian bestseller is full of plot twists, complex themes. Elliot was meant to go with him, but she was all that stood between her dangerously idiotic father and the people, both Reduced and Post Reduction, who depended on her family’s estate for their survival. If I was Elliot?

I’m a miserable girl indeed, don’t you think? It’s madness, I tell you! They plan to run away together but she ended up staying behind.
